Next Episode: Cybersecurity Risks for Directors

Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility, but responsibility starts at the top.  Recent developments on both the regulatory front (the SEC’s proposed cybersecurity rules) and the litigation front (recent successful derivative actions) heighten the focus on the board of directors’ role in cybersecurity.  We will discuss what boards, both private and public, should be doing; recent developments; and what the future holds.

  • The source of director responsibility.
  • Evolution of SEC’s view of cybersecurity risk.
  • Recent litigation trends.
  • Tips to protect boards.
